Advanced Maven options

Getting started with JCover using Maven is covered in: Getting started with JCover. The options described below are for more advanced use:

To force JCover to use Maven:


To use a Maven settings file (substituting the actual file name):

--settings file-name

To specify which Maven profiles to use (substituting the actual profile name):

-P profile

To specify the Maven project/submodule (substituting the actual project name):

--project name

To create a configuration file:

$ jcover --maven-config

(This creates jcover.config in the run directory, containing Jcover parameters for the module under test. JCover then uses these options when run against a specific class.)

To create tests for a specific Java class:

$ jcover --maven classname

(This creates tests, displayed on the screen, for the given classname.)


$ jcover --maven

$ jcover classname (Note: This requires that you have previously run jcover --maven-config.)
